Figures quoted represent past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Performance shown without sales charges would be lower if sales charges were reflected. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted and assumes the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. Click here for current month-end performance.
Public offering price (POP) is the price of one share of a fund including any sales charges. Net asset value (NAV) is the value of one share of the fund excluding any sales charges. Had sales charges been included, performance would be lower.
For Class A shares, the maximum front-end sales charge is 5.75%. Performance including sales charge assumes the sales charge for the corresponding time period.


Net Expense Ratio – effective since 08-01-15   1.15%

Gross Expense Ratio   1.18%

The advisor has committed, through 07-31-16, to waive fees and/or reimburse expenses to the extent necessary to cap the fund's total annual fund operating expenses after fee waiver, excluding certain expenses, at 1.14%. After this time, the cap may be increased or terminated only with the approval of the Board of Trustees. Without this cap, the fund's returns would have been lower.
